Benson Mates on Quotation Marks - Dictionary of Arguments

I 39

Here we insert names of expressions for "φ" and use "ψ" , the values ​​are the expressions themselves.
Problem: inserting expressions for "φ" and "ψ" results in the nonsense: e.g. ("F" a "v" F "b") (quotation marks set too tight).
Solution: > spelling/Quine, >Names of expressions, >Names of sentences.
